Hello, everyone! I’m Christina, and welcome to my life that is the Glass Slipper Chronicles!
I originally grew up in rural Pennsylvania among the cows and cornfields. I focused on and studied music intensively (saxophone, percussion, and vocals) all through high school and in my nine years of collegiate life. Currently, I reside around the DC/MD/VA area, but I am constantly on the go (a passion for travel and a wanderlust heart will do that to you!)…where I’ll end up next, I have no idea!
These here chronicles document my journey into fitness and running. I started running in 2013 during graduate school, and my first race was the Princess Half Marathon in Walt Disney World. Later that year, I hit my quarterlife crisis, and dove into training for my first challenge, the 2014 Glass Slipper Challenge, as a healthy outlet. The result has been incredible: nine half marathons, three full marathons, several 10ks/5ks/virtual runs, lots of road trips (#AreWeThereYet?!), and countless friends made in real life and online through the running community. I’m a proud member of the #WeRunSocial, Team Sparkle, Team runDisney, Team Nuun, and Team Shenanigans. Running with friends makes the experience 15872930x better!!
Feel free to follow my adventures through Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! If you ever want to talk Disney, coffee, The Simpsons, running, music, or anything at all, let me know! I’m always down for good conversation.
See y’all at the finish line!
